"Here's the rub - I don't trust 1/2" dovetails in the Sugar Maple I'm using for the side panels. "

With that size 1/2" thick panels, I can imagine bending that could lead to problems, but dovetails cut in hard maple 1/2" thick? They should be plenty strong.

Maybe I misunderstood. In my world things not going to plan is the norm anyway.
